LiDAR vs RADAR: The war has ended! 

In this eBook, we discuss new innovations for multiple industries and dive into a comparison between LiDAR and RADAR.

Ainstein makes RADAR systems smarter, more affordable and easier to deploy. For years, cost, weight and performance constraints have hindered the wider adoption of RADAR. Ainstein makes RADAR systems accessible to everyone by overcoming these constraints.  

Does LiDAR work in Rain?

Does LiDAR see through walls?

Why does Elon Musk not like LiDAR?


“Lidar is a fool’s errand. Anyone relying on lidar is doomed. Doomed! [They are] expensive sensors that are unnecessary.”

– Elon Musk, CEO, Tesla, Inc.

Fairweather IT (FIT), was using LiDAR to fly over dangerous waters. Although it worked great over land, water was a different story. The water FIT monitors have such a high level of toxicity that any collision is a 100% loss of the UAV. Ian found Ainstein and now uses the US-D1. As Ian puts it, the US-D1 “works flawlessly” over all the many terrains his organization encounters.

Compact. Simple to use. All weather-proof





Have you tried to land or fly your vehicle in stormy weather? Do you fly over lakes or oceans often? Do you have a permit to fly in cloudy conditions, but want added safety assurance?


With rugged design and considerations for small and mid-size UAVs, our intelligent radar sensors are ultra compact and low power-consumption.


Modular antenna design, real-time firmware update, FPGA and sensor fusion, and advanced digital signal processing (DSP) allows you to easily and quickly customize for your own applications.
